SSA Associateship

Join the SSA as a student associate

The SSA also offers student associate status for a reduced fee. This is available to students who are taking or are about to undertake a UK-based course in which the focus of study is in the addiction field. Overseas students enrolled on an addiction course at a university which subscribes to one or both of the Society’s journals are also eligible. This status offers all the benefits of membership without the right to become a Trustee or attend or vote at the AGM, and with online-journal access only.

Please fill in the form below to apply for associateship.

Student associateship must be renewed annually, expiring on 31 December, and applicants must provide proof each year of their ongoing student status. Please upload a scan or screenshot of correspondence from your university, dated in the current year, confirming that in the current or coming academic year, you have been accepted on a course focussing on addiction.
